Headed here with friends after a evening out for dinner. A lot of places in the area were over crowded and really noisy. This was a nice place with great atmosphere and a lot going on. Service was courteous and friendly. Would highly recommend if looking for a place to grab late bite or simply a place to talk without... More

This was my first visit to this place. Thanks to the server for letting us watch the Blue Jackets game. I took fish with asparagus and rice. It was delicious. The size of the meal was American size (large). The server was kind to discuss with us. Very nice person! The price was fair. The only negative point was the... More

So we did have a big party of folks to eat and the food was really good but the service was error prone and not quick . I would say 20% of the orders placed were incorrect when delivered and one guy got his meal about 10 mins after we all finished eating . They were trying hard but it... More

The Bar Area is disgusting! There was Mold and Lime Build Up on the Bar Counter and Beer Taps! Rancid Smell. The Bar Area Needs to be Closed Down for a Deep Clean! I'm Surprised The Health Department Hasn't Shut You Down! My Wife and I Left After 1 Beer!

Probably the worst service ever. Fish and chips were good but waitress rarely was available, brought the wrong drink, and was very unfriendly. Very bad experience.

A real favorite of mine for mid-day lunch or an afternoon conversation over appetizers with a buddy. Their bean dip is near perfection. I particularly enjoy the rueben. This visit, my wife and daughter were with me. The soup was an excellent addition to the sandwich. Try dining al fresco overlooking the stream if weather permits!

Right in the heart of Old Gahanna at Creekside, Bag o Nails is a great place to grab a casual bite to eat. The have a great chicken cheesesteak style sandwich and good salads. They have an upper deck outside seating and also bar seating.

My companions really enjoyed their lunches. I ordered their "famous" fish and chips, which were good but nothing special. Next time I'd skip the fried food and try a salad instead. The setting by the creek was pleasant, and the server was attentive.
